    really nice and unique nose, however the taste is not my cup of tea and quite a bit disappointing compared to the nose.

    The nose triggers a wow effect with me. Fruit and sweetness without end, the nose has many facets and stimulates my salivation. In terms of taste, the sample flattens off, except for pleasant woody notes, the taste gives in my opinion, nothing. Nevertheless, this blindsample was very interesting and the nose compensates for the somewhat flat taste. Tastes!
    • Nose
      Blind tasting: Even when pouring the sample exudes a wonderful sweetness, intense caramel and toffee is added. Now suddenly a banana aroma comes to the fore, a hint of cherries and then tropical fruits. The nose now gives everything she has to offer, I smell there fully ripe peaches?
    • Taste
      Clear and fresh, the whisky pours over the tongue at the first sip. Fine and clearly definable wood tones, followed by slight sharpness and a slightly dry and harsh mouthfeel arises. Only now comes light sweetness and malt through the wood, subtle fruit flavors are also present. A touch of liquorice and old wood finish the taste.
    • Finish
      Relatively unspectacular begins the departure. Tart and slightly bitter wood notes alternate with subtle sharpness. For a long time, the finish ends.

  7. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great whisky at a fair price (~ 55 €), as used by Edradour and the 46% - "... cask matured" series. Too bad to disappear in collections.
    • Nose
      sweet spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, some Edradour muff and leather, with a hint of white wine, diluted: sweet, white grapes, pineapple
    • Taste
      intense, full-bodied, very sweet, lots of toffee & chocolate, cinnamon and cloves, then strong oak, coffee, tobacco, very rich for 46%, you could also hold for a hand strength ... after a while sweet, overripe banana comes in addition
    • Finish
      long and dry, leaves a slightly furry feeling in the mouth, dark chocolate and warm sharpness

  10. Dramlicious scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Normally, I do not put an emphasis on the color of whisky but here I am really impressed by it. Keep in mind, this single malt was matured for only nine short years and Edradour never colors. So they must have been used some exceptional casks I guess.
